I wouldn’t put it past some felines to – on the down low, obviously – have a sign like this made. So aloof sometimes! (Fortunately not our boys, nor their big brother and sister. Though the little one would have said “your f*cking loss” if he wrote it, and his big sister wouldn’t have made the sign to begin with.)
I saw this image the other day and just LOVED it. I have a birthday coming up, and I think whenever that day rolls around we contemplate where we are, where we have been…and what’s up and coming.
BEING AWESOME HAS NO AGE!
The truth of it is, I feel blessed EVERY DAY. You never really know how things will turn out, and I can’t help but be incredibly thankful for the beautiful people in my Life, our health, our love, our laughter, our breath…for those are the most precious gifts we are given.
I don’t really care to celebrate my birthday, and a lot of folks don’t understand that. For the very reason that I embrace gratitude each day…I don’t have to relegate “celebration” to one day. Why isn’t it every day? For all of us?
I think it’s WONDERFUL if people want to have a fête of some kind. I’ve been accused of being a killjoy, or boring, or whatever else, but each day is a gift in my eyes. I certainly have days where I am frustrated, or bothered by something minuscule – I’m human, after all! But as an Empath, my nature is to reflect…on my behavior, my actions, and my thoughts.
When it comes right down to it, I almost feel like one’s birthday could be designated as a personal “Mother’s Day” for the birthee’s mother – SHE did all the work, anyway, let’s just call a spade a spade! And when you think about it…how awesome is SHE?! She’s older, and she’s pretty badass…
I always loved the way my mum’s culture (Italian), or that of the Martial Arts I have studied (Korean, Japanese)…as well as others…take age to be A GOOD THING. The older you are, the more respect you are given – with “age” comes wisdom, so it goes. And that wisdom came from a Lifetime of experiences, problem solving, ups, downs, love and disappointment – it didn’t just appear! Those things enrich a person and add more ticks in the box of awesomeness, the way I see it.
So while I WON’T say I am in love with the deeper wrinkles, and solitary grey hair threats…I feel GOOD to be my age. I feel like I have weathered many storms, and it has forged me into a strong, more awesome person as a result.
I LOVE this photo because this gorgeous lady is sassy as hell – she looks beautiful. She looks in control. And she looks like she is having a ball (jamming to some tunes, I might add – good taste!) 😀
Life gets better…
Life gets MORE “awesome” all the time…
And so, frankly, DO WE.
